Zindagi Tamasha, directed by Sarmad Khoosat, has been recognized globally after winning the Kim Ji Seok Award at Busan International Film Festival. Since then, it has been the hot topic of 2019 and fans can’t wait for the film to release.
The film’s trailer has been removed from YouTube that triggered doubt amongst fans about its release. But, Sarmad put all such doubts to rest in a live session.
Sarmad revealed the release date and the reason behind the removal of the film’s trailer from YouTube, saying:
Zindagi Tamasha will hit the theaters across Pakistan on 24th January 2020. I admit that Khoosat Films removed the trailer from its YouTube channel as a few concerns were raised about the content of our film. Unfortunately, we have to condense the subject of a film in a few minutes for the trailer and hence, sometimes it doesn’t reflect the larger picture. There were a few conflicts about some dialogues and after minor deletions, the trailer will again be uploaded soon.
Sarmad also shared that the movie has been cleared by all three censor boards of Pakistan i.e. Federal, Punjab, and Sindh boards in October 2019, but on a recent review, a few concerns were taken into consideration.
Due to the concerns brought to our attention, we were called for a review recently and after minor cuts, the film has been cleared for release. The Federal censor board has given it an adult rating due to the language spoken, which was kept that way due to the realistic approach of the film. However, in Sindh and Punjab, we got a universal certificate.
He also added that he was happy to abide by all changes and cuts as requested. The film features Arif Hassan, Samiya Mumtaz, Ali Kureshi and Eman Suleman in eminent roles.
